World-famous artist taking his art to slot machines

Wyland known for his murals of marine animals

VALLEY CENTER, Calif. - A world-famous artist is taking his art to a new forum: Slot machines.

Marine muralist Wyland is appearing at the Valley View Casino and Hotel in Valley Center on Friday to sign autographs and paint for visitors. He will also be unveiling the first IGT Wyland Video Slot machines.

Wyland is famous for his massive murals of marine animals. San Diego County is home to several of them, including one at the Del Mar Fairgrounds and another in the Plunge at Belmont Park.

The new slot machines feature his artwork. Portions of money earned by the machines will be donated to the Wyland Foundation, which raises awareness for healthy oceans through education.
